Councilors discuss possibility of video indexing meetings
The Grants Pass City Councilors during their Monday workshop discussed varying minute taking possibilities which may garner some possible savings for the city.
Currently the city keeps nearly verbatim written minutes at a cost of roughly $11,000 per year and has a contract with RVTV for televised broadcasting and a DVD record at a cost of $42,000 annually for a total cost of $53,000.
Proposed changes posed to the councilors include less comprehensive minutes and archived audio and video recordings for a cost of $51,300, a brief written summary of minutes and the continuation of the RVTV contract for $46,000 or a written summary of minutes and the RVTV contract adds video indexing, which would allow the public to search online for exact agenda items, for a cost of $46,300.
The majority of the council seemed to like the video indexing possibility and the options will be added to a future council agenda.
